"Home is Forward" is the next Kickstarter self-publishing project from top selling travel author, Gary Sizer ("Where's the Next Shelter?"). "Home is Forward" takes you beyond the Appalachian Trail this time by bringing you a collection of adventures from around the world. 

We will lose our map in the high tundra of Newfoundland, lose our cold weather gear on the way to Iceland, and lose our memory on a train somewhere in eastern Europe. We will gasp at spicy delights and wondrous creatures in India, explore buried ruins in Peru and learn surprises about ourselves nearly every step of the way. Plus, we'll have fun.

As with every self publishing project there are certain up-front costs: Editing, illustration, and formatting for example. Plus, the proofing and the initial printing of the advance copies that go to readers like you! 

Please support "Home is Forward", and secure your advance copy today. Consider a slightly higher level of support and you'll also receive signed copies or an audio version of the wildly popular "Where's the Next Shelter?" as a bonus for helping out. 

Thank you!

Gary Sizer

 

Risks and challenges

The mountains are climbed and the stories are written. The only risk is the possibility that the Kickstarter doesn't fund and you have to wait to get your copy of the book slightly later than you'd prefer. The only challenge is me challenging you to support this project. You guys already made one best seller a reality. Can we do it again? I believe so.

    For ten dollars, I will go travel the world for years, climb a bunch of mountains, write a book about it and give it to you. Think about that. You couldn't get someone to shovel your driveway for ten bucks. How could you pass this up?
